I wasn't sure if I should write about this or not, but then again, how long am I going to hold on to this? :b

Anyways...I plan to hold back my finished pages so I can have an updating schedule going on. Like, post a page every 2-3 weeks or so. If I hold enough pages back, I can stay ahead and work during those 2-3 weeks when the comics are being updated.Gonna try to finish a page each month ( sometimes I finish a bit early ), and then start the next rough copy. How many am I going to hold? I think I'll finish 2 more pages, then start posting again.

Currently MzM 20 and SMB 49 are finished. Both finished about 3-7 days before their months ended. Doesn't seem like much to you guys probably, but for me, it means something. As I said before, you can keep an eye on my Twitter from my profile here to track my progress on each page.Pages will be posted alternately, and when the time comes, I'll post a poll and let you guys decide which series will be posted first.

Please don't be ticked by this news. I know there hasn't been any updates in a while, but I wanna have a steady flow going. If I fail, I fail, but right now nothing is changing my mind on this.


In other news...got Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, saw Frozen tonight, both awesome. :B

its been a year, but i never lost hope, i knew you were working hard all that time. So many hate comments on page 48 of smb and page 19 of MzM, its ridiculous guys! I'm sure Monica has been caught up with school just hasnt been able to get as much work done as usual. But Monica hasn't given up, the series isn't dead!

Ah I never get to go anywhere these days :L so I got Frozen with my wireless networking thingy ;D to me it was a bit rushed, story was good though lotsa action but yeah Tangled was my fave....dunno where I saw it but Critiques said that Frozen was in par with The Lion King....?!!! XDDD umm, no. Frozen is alright, but it's not the same as the Lion King...:no: Nothing has come close to the classic Disney stuffs..

Anyway, haven't played any new games/bought any since....I can't remember... :< so can't say much about nw games and such...not even 3D Land U__U;

You gotta do what you gotta do! Don't worry about making people mad or anything like that - draw at your own pace and post when you feel comfortable. If people get mad about stuff like this then they're jerks!

I don't see why anyone SHOULD be mad that YOU take YOUR time to post what YOU do, when YOU want. :m Indeed I hate that pressure, feeling like I'm being waited on to "do something amazing", but that shouldn't make me, you, or anyone feel any sort of rush to do anything. It's a small part of why I stopped posting so much, about a year ago, if not a bit longer. (ofcoarse, I'm back to updating more frequently, cuz I sorta have nothing better to do. It's a double-edged sword that is both good, and bad. x___X )

Anyways... the little kiddies that have no good senses, or the over crazed fans that think your only function in life is drawing drawing drawing..... I'm sure this is mainly for them, but to all else, there's no need or reason to have to post this. But anyways, I hope you do find a good balance in the scheduled posting, rather than randomly posting things as they are completed. Just take your time..... if you miss a given deadline, you just miss it. No biggie. You're not a business. :m

Oh... and I've not seen Frozen..... probably won't, for a long time to come..... But Tropical Freeze is AMAZING! :v Going through all the levels on Hard Mode right now.

I think having a schedule, and sticking to it, will help out a lot. Especially dealing with deadlines. And if people are ticked about waiting longer, don't dwell on it. It just makes the whole process that much harder.



I've been debating about getting Tropical Freeze, really tempted to get it.

The way this is needed would be for: pre-production, in that there is a planning session; and making use of otherwise wasted waiting periods, namely if something is in the print phase, you'll be working on your next one in the meantime. Unless you have a full-time job and/or a standard load of imprisoning school, it should not take you half a month to complete a single page. But then again, this claim is assuming you find this line of work to be either very fun and/or you treat this as a profession as opposed to a hobby.

-the news you gave,dont bother me at,at all,sounds like a normal idea to not sto the updates for a bit,it will feel a bit more fast if you upload a series of the pages after another

-i didnt got DK:tropical freeze,i ehard thats prety good,even better than the last DKC returns
i decided to get Bravely Default isntead,beyond awesome RPG for the 3DS,really brings out the old Final Fantasy feeling,this game is friggin hard tho,it kick my ass with every boss XP

- i saw frozen some time ago,i really liked the film,and i liked the female characters on it,it was a great movie^^

clerk:...rigth,you reserved a copy im guessingg?cause if thats not the case you wont find a store with free copies
me:...yeah i did reserved one XP

i was so glad i did,it seems the game became quite rare,heck i was lucky to be rigth on time to resreve a copy,they where almost sold out,i was planning in getting the collectors edition and those werent aviable for pre-orders at all

Nintendrawer Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2014
They said they'll have some more later this month ( or next ), I'll see if they can reserve one for me when I go pick up South Park. I tried the BD demo after release. Liked it, then tried to find a copy. If I played it before it hit the shelves I would have pre-ordered it lol

:iconthesolwing:
TheSolWing Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2014
i actually reserved the game BEFORE playing the demo,as soon i heard that there was gonna be a spiritual succesor to old final fantasy games i pre-ordered the game without a second tough since im a big fan of RPG's(seems like most people also tough this XP)
then when i played the demo,i actually got a bit worried,cause the demo as a TON of stuff in it that just gets trown at you from the get go,i felt overwhelmed in it,not to mention that the demo is just as hard as the game itself XP
i was worried the game was also gonna do this,and thankfully i was wrong,the game is hard,and the battle mechanics take a bit to understand,but nothing imposible to do,im really enjoying the heck out of this game,i really recomend you to play it,good luck finding a copy!^^
